I'm not sure that we really gain much from this message from one of this site's long time visitors, Hayden, but it makes for a very interesting read nonetheless. I wasn't sure where to place this info so I decided to put it in the Rumors section for now.

Hi there. I am a long time reader, but first time poster to this site.

I have a bit of interesting news from inside the halls of Dreamworks. My friend works there and actually got his hands on the first set of sketch books for both the Autobots and Decepticons. He said there were DVDs with the books too but he wasn't able to see those. He made the comment that the first sketches look a bit different than the original look from G1. He made the comment that they look much more moderized, and have a terminator style look. Again he pointed out the sketches were the first ones and only concepts.

He also did mention though that while he heard the original script only called for about 4 Autobots (Prime, Bumble, Jazz, Ratchet) there was a "pink" colored autobot character that he forgot the name of in the sketches that looked "chick" like. However he also said that ALL the robots would be non gender specific anyway. So Im not sure what that all means.

Anyway, [my friend] is a good guy and I trust what he says. Much of this info is probably not a big deal, but I just thought it was interesting that he said the first set of sketches were done [and] on their way over to the execs very soon!

Hope you find the info as interesting as I did!


Thanks for sharing this information with us Hayden and thanks for continuing to be a visitor of SEIBERTRON.com!

Hey everyone! I added a new forum to the popular Energon Pub message board tonight. Due to all of the excitement surrounding the upcoming movie and with Dreamworks doing some fun promotional stuff regarding the movie, I thought now was as good a time as any to launch the all new Transformers The Movie (from Dreamworks) Forum forum at the Energon Pub. If you want to talk about the Movie, who should voice your favorite characters, talk about the movies that the TF Movie staff has already worked on, or anything else related to the Dreamworks Transformers movie, visit the all-new Transformers The Movie (from Dreamworks) Forum today!

SHOCKWAVE to be in Dreamworks' Transformers The Movie?

Amidst all of the other Transformers news that occured today, I wanted to make sure that the first reference of SHOCKWAVE being in the movie wasn't overlooked. Ol' one eyes certainly deserves his time in the spotlight. This might actually make sense why we've seen a couple other Shockwaves (Shockblast, Laserwave - whatever name you want to use) appear as toys in the past year.

Here's the specific quote from

You can read the full article
ComingSoon.net.

Today's "most uncomfortable" quote of the day:

"The first question you have to ask yourself is what's the movie? We sat down with Steven Spielberg, and we said that the action scenes in this movie are a given, but he said that that it's the story of a boy and his car and that he wants to bring back the old Amblin movies. It's 'Back to the Future'…great! We're in! It's a real challenge, because the key to making those movies work--and I totally think it's why 'War of the Worlds' works so well--is to be so invested in the people and to maintain the subjectivity of the humans. If you start 'Transformers' with giant robots sitting in a spaceship flying through space, your movie is dead in the water. It's all about keeping it at a human level, and seeing the amazing things that are going on through the eyes of the characters."

Hopefully this will be clarified so we all don't freak out for the next 2 years. I'm sure the movie is in good hands.

    As metioned yesterday Transfomers.com has been updated today with a big Announcement concerning the forthcoming Transformers Live Action Movie. The new comes in the form of a Comic Con Q&A and a Movie News Article giving details of the Deamworks film. Both news items announce the Movie will get its US release on July 4th 2007!

    NOTE: The tentative release date for the Transformers movie does not coincide with the release date of Spider-Man 3. Spider-Man 3 is set to be released on May 4th, 2007, according to the official Spider-Man 3 website.


    TRANSFORMERS WILL BE MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE AT THEATRES NATIONWIDE ON 07-04-07

    The live-action “Transformers” movie has been set to open nationwide on 07-04-07, it was jointly announced today by DreamWorks Pictures, Hasbro, Inc.
    (NYSE: HAS), and Paramount Pictures.

    The feature, based on the globally popular Transformers franchise, will be directed by Michael Bay (upcoming “The Island,” “Armageddon”) from a screenplay being written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (upcoming “The Island”). Steven Spielberg (“War of the Worlds”) is executive producing the film, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura (upcoming “Four Brothers”), Tom DeSanto (“X-Men” and “X2: X-Men United”) and Don Murphy (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) serving as co-executive producers.

    In making the announcement, DreamWorks head of distribution Jim Tharp stated, “Under the direction of Michael Bay, and with Steven Spielberg executive producing, we know that ‘Transformers’ is going to be the kind of explosive action movie that is perfect for the height of the summer movie season. By staking our claim on the 4th of July, 2007, we ensure that we not only have the time to make this movie the way it should be made, but also to build excitement and awareness leading up to its release.”

    “Fans around the world have wanted a Transformers live-action movie for a long time and we are thrilled to work with DreamWorks and Paramount to bring this legendary saga to life on the big screen,” said Brian Goldner, President of Hasbro’s U.S. Toy segment. “With some of the entertainment industry’s best talent on board for this film, fans will experience Transformers in a way that is incredibly powerful.”

    DreamWorks will distribute the film domestically, while Paramount will handle the international release. Hasbro will work with the production team and DreamWorks on all aspects of the film’s creative development, marketing and promotions, and will manage merchandising in conjunction with the release of the film.

    This week, DreamWorks is launching the official “Transformers” movie website (www.transformers.com) at Comic-Con International, being held from July 13 – 17 in San Diego, California. “Transformers” will also be making its presence known in a big way, with a huge 18-wheeler truck sporting the instantly recognizable Transformers logo dominating the area around the DreamWorks booth—and much of the convention floor—letting thousands of fans know that “Transformers” is coming to the big screen on 07-04-07.

    Introduced in 1984, the Transformers brand took the world by storm with its compelling saga of the Autobots versus the Decepticons. The innovative “Robots in Disguise” resulted in a tremendously successful toy line from Hasbro and Takara, comic book series, television program and an animated feature film. More than 20 years later, a new generation has discovered the excitement of the Transformers brand and its legendary characters, including the two leaders of the opposing sides: Optimus Prime and Megatron. Today, the franchise features a popular toy line, an animated series on the Cartoon Network and a chart-topping comic book series from IDW Publishing.

    DreamWorks SKG was formed in October 1994 by its three principal partners—Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen. The studio is actively involved in the production of live-action motion pictures and network and cable television programs, and the distribution of live-action and animated feature films, as well as home video entertainment.

    Hasbro (NYSE:HAS) is a worldwide leader in children's and family leisure time entertainment products and services, including the design, manufacture and marketing of games and toys, such as MONOPOLY and G.I. JOE, ranging from traditional to high-tech. Both internationally and in the U.S., its PLAYSKOOL, TONKA, MILTON BRADLEY, PARKER BROTHERS, TIGER, and WIZARDS OF THE COAST brands and products provide the highest quality and most recognizable play experiences in the world.

    Paramount Pictures is part of the entertainment operations of Viacom Inc. (NYSE: VIA and VIAB), one of the world’s largest entertainment and media companies and a leader in the production, promotion, and distribution of entertainment news, sports and music.

    In another case of "not reading what I wrote, but reading what you think I wrote" Don Murphy did his best to clarify some things on his report from last sunday. All he said was that the movie was falling behind schedule, not that it was in danger of being cancelled.

    The producer had the following to say on his board.

    "I just saw a headline on Comics2Film- "Is Transformers in Trouble?" and then linking to my Sunday post. God knows who else did it.

    What is happening on Transformers is what happens on films ALL THE TIME. Steven Spielberg, Dreamworks, Hasbro and I are committed to making a GREAT TF film. We'd rather not make an okay one. And so it is taking longer than we hoped to get off the launch pad. We still will launch. It will be GREAT and then we will make sequel after sequel.

    There is no doubt that this is true. I just like to share with you guys the blips and the crannies- but the film itself is not in the slightest peril".

    "Hmm. So, let's get this straight...

    Steven and Michael want the current writers. SI

    However, their draft of the script is not "finalised".SI

    They've moved on to MI3 with Steven's blessing. NOT WITH BLESSING, BUT THAT IS CORRECT

    In the meanwhile, the script remains incomplete.SI


    Soooo, is Bay gonna be shown the current version of the script, on the understanding that before final production starts, the writers will finalise it? NO

    Will Bay now start working towards production, casting etc on the principle that by the time December, or whenever shooting begins, rolls around, the final script will be perfect? DUNNO"
